The Public Art Program at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) consists of permanent art works, sculptures and the CALHN (RAH) Collection, used to create a pleasant environment for staff, patients and visitors.
During the development of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, CCH identified five art works as significant to staff and patients which were transferred as fixed works to the new RAH. One Perspex work is hanging in the entrance to the Cancer Day Centre; two are Perspex works hanging in the Renal Unit; another is the Tree of Hope 3D sculpture in the Burns Unit; and the final work is a four panel Perspex to be hung in the Spiritual Care Space.
CCH also identified, catalogued and stores the CALHN (RAH) Art Collection of approximately 250 works. Works from the collection are selected and feature in themed exhibitions displayed at specific times throughout the year at the RAH with some works also selected for display at other CALHN sites.
The RAH also has five sculptures, four of which were installed as part of the build and the fifth which was installed at the request of CCH. CCH has created and installed plaques with the name of the work, the artists name and the materials used at the site of each work.
